Okay, so it would be fabulous if I actually waited until Christmas to give my children what I make them, but you know, I stink at waiting. I finished this at night and almost woke my kids up to give it to them. Thankfully, their enthusiasm matched mine.
It all started out with my son's love for turnout blankets. He was using washcloths. I decided to make him his own for his little horse. And then, I got carried away. (Surprising, right?!)
Anyway, here it is. I remember my pretend play days as a kid, and this just makes me giddy with excitement.
A "Ty" beanie baby horse that a friend gave us.
A lightweight and a heavyweight turnout blanket that I made.
Two metal buckets.
A baby brush that I have never had to use since my babies are bald.
A homemade felt apple and carrot (not sewn to size because I have learned that little pieces get lost).
All of this, I pretty much had around the house or got for a dollar or two at a thrift shop. And now it's a marvelous set for next to nothing.
Goodness, he loves it.
And in case you missed my other playsets...
Here's the puppy playset:
And here's the bear playset:
And now the horse playset. And I can't wait to dream up of another.
